I’ve taught mindful movement to older adults since 1990 with emphasis on balance, walking and upright posture based on the Feldenkrais Method® of Movement Education. Since 2014, I’ve taught a class for People with Parkinson’s drawing on the Feldenkrais Method, Dance for PD and since, March 2016, PWR!Moves. The weekly class includes floor work, standing, walking, cognitive challenge and vocal practice. In Jan. 2017, I began a second weekly class for those unable to get to the floor, needing a slower pace, or additional support or modifications. Care partners are welcome as well. Twice a year, I teach a “Walking Well with Poles” series. While not PD-specific, many People with Parkinson’s have found it helpful.
